Bill Clinton‘s spokesman Angel Ureña responded by writing “Ridiculous, and of course not true — and Donald Trump knows it. Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?”

The Hill has attempted to reach the White House and Hillary Clinton for comment.
Officials on Saturday said that Epstein, who had been indicted on sex-trafficking charges, died overnight by an apparent suicide while in jail.
Epstein, a registered sex offender, was arrested last month and was awaiting trial.
He has been linked to both Trump and Bill Clinton, but both have denied wrongdoing in their meetings with the financier.
